    I believe it was on Wednesday (time in 2020 is an illusion . . .) that my anniversary present from my wife arrived.

    When this book was announced, I gave serious thought to buying it, but ultimately passed because of the expense at the time was hard to justify, and I already have two other versions.

    To say I was surprised that she bought this for me as a present would be quite the understatement. I was almost speechless.

    This is the mustard edition of Stardust from Lyra's Books. I was given the option of choosing either the blue or mustard, but went with the mustard for a few reasons. I think it looks really cool. It's a beautiful production and one I'm proud to have and ecstatic that my wife tracked one down for me.

    Just picked up Sam Weller's Dark Black a collection of Short Stories. Weller is probably best known as Ray Bradbury's biographer.

Some of the cool factor about this book goes beyond the tangible stuff -- layout, design, cover art, rarity, etc. -- is that it is (as far as I'm aware) the very first limited appearance of Repairman Jack, and if you're like me and enjoy the series character, having and holding that bit of genre history of one of its foremost protagonists is pretty neat.
    Yes I love RJ. F Paul Wilson is a great guy.

    Too bad I have to wait until Christmas to actually hold it.

    So far after wearing the brace for about two days, I don't notice it doing anything while on, but I can definitely tell it was doing something when I don't wear it.
    You're covered (or uncovered) under HIPPA. You can't be asked about your absence of pants in the workplace. Probably would only apply while wearing the brace though

    I'm recovering from knee replacement surgery, had it October 4th. My suggestion don't dick around, get the surgery. Not even 2 months in and I'm a hundred percent better. Both of my knees were shot with arthritis due to service connected injuries. I'm 63, I have suffered through my knee issues since my 40s. Don't wait, get the replacement as soon as you can.

    Anything RoboCop is a plus in my book.

    I have one more round of shots and still doing PT, so hopefully I'll be back to running again by the first of the year. Planning on walking down to Starbucks here in a bit which will be a good trial for a long walk. I just know running is going to be strange with this thing . . .

    Glad you got it diagnosed and are on your way to hopefully a non-surgical solution. Good luck, and get better.
